Temporary Accommodation Support

Three of our most experienced Pregnancy Outreach Workers (POWs) have been working with Birmingham City Council since Summer 2013 as Support Workers to the Temporary Accommodation team.

Gateway was approached by Birmingham City Council to run a small pilot because of our solid track record of working with vulnerable families. Our involvement will allow the Council’s Housing Needs Officers to concentrate on finding accommodation for a family, whilst Support Workers Colette, Sarah and Miriam support them with all the other issues that they may have.
